Hi,

I have been thinking about MBA for quite sometime. But my urge to do an MBA specializing in Strategy/ Finance has grown significantly. However due to age and cost factor it has become very difficult to decide type of MBA (Full Time/ Executive) and schools to target for MBA. I always wanted to do an MBA which will help in advancing my career. It would be great if you can answer the following questions based on my profile as below

1) Whether full time or Executive education is better and which schools prefer higher experience in selecting candidates
2) I would prefer to go to an international school outside India. Which schools will be better for my kind of profile
3)Which MBA will be cost efficient or schools where scholarships are available. or loans at chaper rates are available
4) Any other comment which you think will be helpful for my application.

Hi,

Your have good academics and a remarkable corporate exposure. Per your profile, an executive MBA is the best fit as you have a work experience of more than 10 years. You can target INSEAD MBA Global Executive Program that requires more than five and half years of work experience and the duration of an Executive MBA Programme of INSEAD is 1 year. It offers one of the best courses in Strategy and Finance. Other colleges that you might consider applying for are Duke, HEC Paris, HBS & other top Business Schools.

The next step for you is to focus more on your GMAT Score and application essays for these Business Schools. Scholarship in many of these schools is determined by special scholarship essays where you have to convince the admission committee as why would you require a scholarship. Another important to note here is that for majority of your career you have been involved in engineering practices but you now want an MBA in Finance and Corporate Strategy. You will even have to justify this move in both your personal interview and essays.

Hence it would be highly advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance on getting a good GMAT score, letters of recommendations and get your essays/scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application. Also consider taking classes for GMAT preparation to have an eligible GMAT score.
